About Us

We are a church made up of real people who are rooted in both the historic Christian faith and the communities in which we live. Our aim is to provide a church experience that is restful and accessible for our neighbors.

We are a church plant of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) commited to Biblical, confessional, Reformed truth; to rich Christian community; and to historic corporate worship.

Whether you’ve been attending church your whole life, or you’re wondering how Jesus fits into your story, we’d love to welcome you!
